Samuel Adams Berliner Weisse served in a snifter from bottle.

Share This Review

Samuel Adams Berliner Weisse is a German-style Berliner Weisse brewed by the Boston Beer Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a 12 oz. bottle.

Appearance

Pours a mostly clear gold with an inch-thick head of soapy, white foam that offers modest retention. Residue gathers at the collar and a smatter of lace coats the glass.

Aroma

Soft aroma is a little sweet and musty with a scent of mixed citrus and bready wheat.

Flavor

Taste transitions from a light, malt biscuit to a clean and dry finish consisting of mildly tart lemongrass.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel has a light body with moderate carbonation. Adequate, but would prefer a bit more pop to the feel.

Overall

This is a nice summer beer but somewhat tame for the style. This Berliner doesn’t pack the level of tartness found in better representations of the style and instead is a middle-of-the-road-sure-to-please-the-masses kind of sour beer. However, the Samuel Adams Berliner Weisse is certainly a refreshing ale for a hot summer afternoon.
